Applicants needed for Fox Chapel Area School Board

Tuesday, April 8, 2014, 10:33 a.m.

The Fox Chapel Area School Board needs two new board members.

Residents who live in Region 1 can begin applying this week for the school board seats. Region 1 includes Sharpsburg and Wards 2, 3 and 4 of O'Hara Township.

The positions became open on Monday when the school board accepted the resignations of Sherman Snyder and Robin Baum.

Snyder and Baum each submitted earlier letters stating personal matters as the reason for their resignations.

Snyder has served on the school board for 16 years, winning another four-year term in the November general election.

Baum was first appointed to fill a vacancy in May 2005.

Applicants to the school board must have lived in the district for at least one year. The terms will run through the next municipal election, in November 2015.

Applications can be downloaded at and submitted with a resume by noon, April 25 to Board of School Directors, Solicitor Paul Giuffre, Esq., 221 Commercial Ave., Aspinwall, PA 15215.

Interviews will be conducted at 12:30 p.m. April 26 in the large group instruction room at the high school. The board will vote immediately afterward.
